The objective of this work was to study the influence of crystalline admixtures on the durability of concrete. Four concrete mixtures – two reference concretes and two alternative mixtures-were produced during the first phase of the research. Influence of curing on the activation of the crystals was investigated on concrete slab specimens. The properties measured were the compressive strength and different durability indicators. The results revealed that crystalline admixtures enhanced the strength and the durability of the alternative mixtures.
